In late 2000 - early 2001, RINGS held its second King of Kings tournament across several of their shows in Japan. The tournament, which was eventually won by Minotauro Nogueira,

I think they should rename that article as "Another Loss on Couture's Record That Almost Was"

Liddell should put on 20 pounds, move up in weight class, and kick Couture's ass one more time, just to piss off all the Couture fanbois.

If that cur never happened...
It wouldnt be another loss that almost was it would of been a replacement loss to Fedor instead of overeem.
Then today we wouldnt have this argument can randy beat fedor.
Or maybe randy would of won that fight years ago and then we would be arguing can fedor avenge his only loss against randy.

Chuck vs Randy 4 heavyweight i would watch it and being a randy and chuckhugger it wouldnt break my fanboy heart whoever won.

Would ppl please stop saying "that loss doesn't really count now cuz...." HE LOST, omfg!!!!!, your world has not come to an end. It was weird circumstances but his record says and alway will w/e-1. Face it everyone loses sometimes. He's an athlete and dealt w/ the decision that was made, i wish the babies on the internet would do the same.
